Road Accident

Panic at Likoni Ferry as Two Ferries Collide With Thousands of People On Board -VIDEO

There was drama at the Likoni crossing channel after two ferries collided with thousands of people on board.

MV Likoni collided with MV Jambo at the Likoni crossing channel, causing panic among passengers on board.

According to sources, the collision resulted in one of the ferries developing a mechanical problem which saw it stuck in the middle of the deep ocean for more than 40 minutes.

Commuters on board were spotted saving prayers, asking their creator to save them from the danger that was staring at them.

Fortunately, Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) hatched a plan which saw them deploy another ferry that helped MV Likoni move to the ramp before commuters disembarked.

"Tulikua na wasi wasi mwingi, so ni kuomba Mungu tu kwa kufika salama, ni Mungu tu," said one of the commuters, which loosely translates to

(We were so much worried, so it was just praying to God, it is only Him that we have disembarked while alive)

The commuters asked KFS to put proper plans in place so that such cases can be avoided.

Several accidents have happened at the channel, with some leading to loss of lives and properties.
